M7 Auto Transport Emerges From Bankrupted Auto Strap Transport

M7 Auto Transport has announced its grand opening. The launch came after the auto hauler acquired the assets of Auto Strap Transport, which filed for bankruptcy in late 2017.

M7 will operate under the leadership of CEO Brandon Nilles, who most recently served as the vice president of KT Auto Transport, an auto carrier headquartered near Seattle. The company is backed by Nations Equipment Finance.

“Our industry is rapidly changing, and Nations’ support allows us to invest in new systems and new opportunities for drivers and customers who care about safety, quality and on-time delivery,” Nilles said in a Jan. 8 press release.

M7 plans to continue expanding and updating its fleet of auto transporters. It also is recruiting company and owner-operator drivers.

Based in Fontana, Calif., M7 is serving manufacturing and aftermarket needs across California and the Pacific Northwest. — Transport Topics
